Admittedly, I knew little about R&B star Miguel until the infamous leg drop incident at the Billboard awards. The memes have been thoroughly entertaining and overshadowed (briefly) the fact that he is quite talented, won numerous music awards and is a respected player in the music industry. (See this awesome collab with Kendrick Lamar.)
In the interview above with Charlie Sloth on BBC Radio’s 1Xtra, Miguel gets the funny stuff out of the way, talking about the Billboard incident, first reactions, after the cameras rolled and other awkwardness. He then goes on to answer candidly about his “crazy tweets” specifically his claims that “black people are the most judgemental people in the world” and how, he says, black people are preconditioned to hate each other.
